In 1986 Mr. and Mrs. Jerry and Sue Higley purchased a Westfalia franchise/dealership in Chino, California and named the business Automated Dairy Systems. Mr. Higley desired to grow his franchise and look to Idaho because of it’s growing agriculture and dairy industry. In 1988 Mr. and Mrs. Higley procured the Surge dealership, retained the name of Automated Dairy Systems, and moved to Jerome, Idaho.

Today, Automated Dairy has grown to over 100 employees with their corporate headquarters located in Jerome, Idaho. Automated Dairy also has offices Nampa ID., Rupert ID., Tulare CA., Escalon, CA. Modesto, CA., and Fallon NV.

Automated Dairy started its own research and development division where they manufactured a proprietary automated dairy system called TURBOWASH. This PLC will allow total access to all a dairy’s daily milking functions, ensuring Consistency and Proactive Control in milking.

Automated Dairy also provides a full dairy chemical, maintenance and service division, and a complete dairy installation and remodeling division. Each entity has the same goal and approach when analyzing and setting up dairy systems to ensure a balance of fast, safe, gentle, and complete milk harvest.

Providing quality milking equipment and unsurpassed service to dairies 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
